This component enables you to integrate the contents of the Multi-media database ( dmmdb ) into a Drupal website.

Dmmdb component for Drupal : drupal-dmmdb-7.x-1.0

Once you have installed a dmmdb ( preferred installation from the CVS ), you can embed dmmdb blocks into your drupal 7.x website using the Drupal dmmdb component :

1/ get it using the CVS repository :

 cvs login ( empty password )
 cvs co drupal-dmmdb-7.x-1.0

2/ install it as a normal drupal module :

cp -rf drupal-dmmdb-7.x-1.0 <drupal-root>/sites/all/modules

3/ configure the module to get as many dmmdb blocks as you want.

4/ create a block with the following parameters :

  • List of channels or 'all' for all channels : a list of channels you want to see ( ex: giss, telenoika )
  • Number of videos per menu : number of accessible videos at once
  • Width of dmmdb blocks : this is the size of the block before drupal resize it to a width of 100%
 This is used to control the aspect ratio of the block.
  • Show videos in a pop-up window : pop-up a modal window to play videos
  • Show search window : show search window
  • Show comments on media : show comments
  • Show Latest Videos : show latest videos ( default=yes )
  • Show categories : show categories
  • Show most viewed : show most viewed
  • Show favorites : show favorites
  • Show playlists : show playlists
  • Show friend channels : show friend channels
  • Show latest media on friend channels : show latest videos on friend channels
  • Show videos of the same author : show videos by the same author
  • Show videos in the same category : show videos of the same category
  • Show videos with the same keywords : show videos with the same keywords
  • Text Color : text color
  • Background Color : background color
  • Tip Text Color : tip text color

Note : this is an experimental release, you might experience problems when using various themes and modules ( especially with the css and styles ), report these problems to us ( gissnetwork _at_ ) as we cannot test every drupal configuration out there.

Note 2 : previous versions of drupal are not supported.
